Atelier Embé

About me Cars Landscapes Sailboats Home

Born on September, 19th, of 1965 in Stuttgart, Germany.

With creating drawings and paintings with concern to various technical themes I started soon as a child. Mostly I liked making architecture plans and sketches of cars. Also a redesign of technical articles of daily use, even with adding other functions was one of my favourites.

I made first experiences with oil painting at my primary school age. I could use my mothers oil painting equipment. Late I convoyed the painter Hans Hahn-Seebruck from Leinfelden for painting in the nature and helped him making colour prints from his woodcuts.

I couldn't fullfill my wish to study transportation design in Pforzheim, so I studied electrical engineer in Esslingen. Meanwhile my job lead me to the car development. So the technical development and the fine art for cars are the two sides of fascination on cars.

Since many years my painting is about cars. I like oldtimer also as newer cars. I show them in a natural manner in town, a landscape or on race track.

I think, good painting about cars is quite rare.

Ich sehe das Objekt Automobil, obwohl es fester und zahlreicher Bestandteil unserer täglichen Umgebung ist, in der Kunst nur als gering vertreten an. Ein hochwertiger, überwiegend auch im Design anspruchsvoller Gebrauchsgegenstand, eine Massenware unserer Zeit, möchte ich zum Kunstobjekt machen. Aber auch zum Objekt der künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung.

My signature Embé are my german spoken initals written in a french format. From 2001 to 2006 I worked in the studios of the association Atelier Metzingen and was joint founder of the group Kunstwerk. Several single und common exhibitions at home and abroad happened in this period.

Meanwhile I work in my own studio in the area of Stuttgart, in the Kallenbergstr. 77 in 70825 Korntal-Münchingen
